Abstract
In this paper, we present an integrated learning framework that includes course delivery, interactive online laboratories, video streaming, Java visualization modules, testing, and assessment. The proposed framework uses HTML and Java based technologies to augment the existing J-DSP environment, in order to improve the overall learning experience of students in both undergraduate and graduate level signal processing courses. An interactive DSP quiz forms the central part of the proposed interface, through which the different learning components can be accessed. In addition, functionality that enables students to execute custom Java code in a J-DSP block diagram has also been developed. The initial assessment results are encouraging and indicate that students as well as instructors find the proposed infrastructure helpful.

Several web-based signal processing simulation packages for education have been developed in a Java environment. Although this environment has provided convenience and accessibility using standard browser technology, it has recently become vulnerable to cyber-attacks and is no longer compatible with secure browsers. In this paper, we describe our efforts to transform our award-winning J-DSP online laboratory by rebuilding it on an HTML5 framework. Along with a new simulation environment, we have...

In this paper, we describe a new set of software functions and associated exercises that can be used for teaching orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) concepts in undergraduate DSP and communications courses. These tools can be used to simulate, visualize, and analyze the performance and behavior of OFDM systems by considering different input signals and communication channels. OFDM is a compelling paradigm because of its utility in WiFi and LTE. It is also a good demonstration of t...
